Serena might just get 3/10 on looks (on a good day with lots of make-up) but add the minus 1,000,000/10 on personality = big fail.  At the US Open this year, of the various americans I got talking to (as you do) not a single one liked her (and some outright hated her).

With Sloane and Eugeine around, most Americans jump on the young gun bandwagon. Shame most have forgotten about Venus, which is a shame because I always thought she was slightly better than Serena.

You've only got to watch "Sport Lemon" to see the extent of the horrible racism that exists in the world today, regarding the Williams sisters/Tsonga etc etc.
I personally think Serena is magnificent, powerful and  beautiful too.

The Williams sisters have come from so little to so much that they deserve to both be GOAT's. Reference to the Venus and Serena movie that was made to tell their life story. Their sister was murdered in cold blood, their father was a control freak and Serena actually experienced one of the worst cases of racism in sport during the 2001 Indian Wells final, and what did she do? Thrashed Clijsters.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Can "rating" female tennis player's looks get moved to a different thread please?

I don't mean this to offend anyone,but as a girl it makes me uncomfortable,and it doesn't really have anything to do with Laura specifically-she's not even named in some of the lists.

  Know what you mean, but the way some of you women drool over Andy is just as discomfiting to some of us guys!

Well,apologies for that (though I don't think I've ever gone on at too much length!),but to be honest,I think there is a big difference between saying if you find someone attractive (or equally saying they're not your type or whatever.) and lining up a list of people and rating them out of 10.

...on a different forum would be good. I'm not keen on the Andy drooling myself, (or the cheerfully expressed hatred for other players), but what's happened to this thread is bizarre. Rating a top level sportsperson 0/10 for looks. Really?

I think Laura is fabulous. I hope she can get over her bronchitis problems, and find a suitable coach. It was a trial period with Miles Maclagan.

He told BBC Radio 5 live in June: "It's a new challenge and that's why we have a trial period - to see what happens."
